I was lucky enough to get my hands on this anthology and can honestly say, it was enjoyable reading it. Twenty authors decided to do something special for the holidays. They put together this book to go #Nuts4Books and proceeds will benefit the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation.

How Great Is That!

Now I wasn't able to read all of the stories so far but I have read a couple and what a delight.

You can’t go wrong with twenty new short stories from twenty rom-com authors. Each story is holiday themed, and every story is fun. Usually, I think the best part of anthologies is becoming acquainted with new authors, but the Jingle Balls Anthology has the added benefit of doing something good. The proceeds from the sale of the Jingle Ball Anthology benefit the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation.

I picked up this book because I love Christina Hovland’s Mile High Matched series, and I wanted

Good variety, steam, sometimes sweet: 🎉party-induced romance💋

Some better than others but it's a good variety of short stories, some obviously just the prequel to a future, longer treatment of a romance or an interlude in an already-established series. My favorites included:

-Rockin' Around the Jingle Balls Ball by Susannah Nix. I Loved Nix's Remedial Rocket Science and this story brings back Melody in a supporting role. Her friend and a stranger switch their first dates for a hook-up with each o

Ended up not reading all of the stories as they were all quite similar. Some kind of ball/party/ gathering and sex. Different circumstances but nevertheless similar story in each part.

But bravo to the ladies for writing for such a great cause!

I love Christmas romances, and even more, I love a Christmas anthology! This one is great and such a festive enjoyable read. There is a common theme in the book that there’s a charity ball or function and since this is a charity anthology that raises money for testicular cancer, it’s mentioned in these stories, and I love that. You won’t be disappointed by these stories and since it’s a charity anthology, your purchase will be going to a good cause. I received an ARC but I will be purchasing aft ...more

Licking His Candy Cane by Elizabeth Lynx

4,5 stars

Funny and so, so sexy, I'm not surprised, because that is exactly what you can expect from this author, and she always delivers.

I'm curious about Monty and Julia's story since Ruining the Billionaire's Wedding (first book in the Blue Ridge Mountain Billionaires series), and I could get a glimpse of what happened with them and how they met.

I already loved their first interaction and I can't wait to see more about them, because I have a feeling (sin

Decidedly For Christmas is a wonderful story of a chance meeting of two old friend but because it's

beginning to Stina's next book in the series.

Review for... Not So Silent Night by Piper Rayne

For you Rooftop Crew fans this quick read gives you POV's for all the crew and will absolutely have you intrigued for their next release in this series Our Star-Crossed Kiss. I loved getting sneak peeks at the relationships between each crew character, as well as, how Dylan and Rian's love for each other has only grown. I had nothing but a smile from ear to ear while reading this fun story!

This was a fun, sexy story about overcoming insecurities and to be proud of who you are, just as you are. Chelsea goes to the Jingle Balls Ball and bids on Taylor. He is the barista she has always been attracted to, but never had the courage to pursue it. Christmas stories always cheer me up and gets me in the holiday spirit.

Oh I am so glad I got to read an early copy of this fun, fun book. I wanted to read it because I'm a fan of Serena Bell, Piper Rayne and Delancey Stewart.
I love Serena's story. I Told You So was so sweet and funny and really romantic for a short little novella. And the grandma made my day with her eerily peek into the future. LOL

*Scoring A Holiday Match by Delancey Stewart

Mr. Match is at it again!

"Rose?"
"Yeah," I said, my voice as weak as my knees felt. I cleared my throat and tried to get hold of myself. I was not a shy twenty-one-year-old, dammit.

And THAT, is how Mr. Match works, by the way. When you least expect it, and who you least expect. Rose is CEO of a IT Security company. She doesn't have time for much of a personal life.

Ash, well he has decided to do more than just sit back and spend his trust fund. He is an

I picked this up for charity and stayed for the delightful stories. Some steamy, some not, and with ball jokes aplenty this lineup of fantastic authors has plenty for you to enjoy. My favorite stories in no particular order: Susannah Nix's ROCKIN' AROUND THE JINGLE BALLS BALL, Tracey Pedersen's LICK MY SNOWBALLS, and Sylvie Stewert's NUTS ABOUT YOU.

Bonus: The endless giggling when my husband told my MIL what I was reading.

Deck the Halls with Balls by Marika Ray is hysterical and is sure to put a smile on your face. We take a trip back to Auburn Hill to revisit favorite characters, meet new ones, and experience the Jingle Ball. You never know what to expect with each visit so buckle up and prepare for a wild time. This anthology is also ...more

This is a great selection of funny, sexy HEA"s all set around the holidays and testicular cancer awareness events/fundraisers. The authors in this anthology stayed true to task and I laughed out at some of the cheesy antics, awkward moments and so many double entendres centered around "balls". The stories span from second chance to insta-love but are well thought out and well written. Some standouts for me:

I am always down to read Christmas stories at any time of the year - so when I had the opportunity to read this anthology, I jumped at the chance.

What a great set of stories - and for a great cause! It was also so great to read some of my favorite author and revisit some of the storylines they'd set up in previous books. Delancey Stewart's Scoring a Holiday Match was so fun because 1.) it took me back to the wonderful Mr. Match series, and 2.) the opening line made me crack up, which totally le

This review is only for the SOPHIA HENRY story. I received an ARC for my honest opinion.

I loved it! I love just about everything Ms. Henry writes and this story was no different. For such a short story, it was loaded with sexual tension from the first page til the last. Both MCs were fleshed out enough that I just wanted to read more about both of them and see how their story ends. And speaking of ends, it was left on such a cliffhanger, which I usually hate, that I know I'll be ready to buy as

I can’t rate an anthology for a good cause low. I just can’t. But in general, I think I can sum this anthology up by breaking it into 4 categories:

1) Short story writers: Those that wrote a short story. I applaud each of these authors. Some were okay, some were kickin’.

2) Intro cliffys: Those who wrote cliffhangers as the beginning or part of a series that isn’t out yet. I curse you! *shakes tiny fist*

This review is for Ball Sacked by Christina Hovland. First off, I love this crazy Russian family. Every time they are involved they make me laugh out loud (I get looks, I don’t care). This time, Anna, Jase & Roman’s sister, is nursing a broken heart while helping out at the Jingle Balls Ball. Her and her boyfriend Drake, professional football player, broke up after she offered to move to Miami with/for him. It did not go well, so she went bye bye. But she still misses him.

From the Anthology I read: "Deck The Halls With Balls" by Marika Ray

Marika Ray is the queen of rom-coms and she has struck again with this hilariously funny novella. I love reading her books because her characters make me want to get involved in their crazy situations. They always have fun and certainly enjoy living in the quirky town of Auburn Hill. I love this series and I am thrilled she has given us two more characters to enjoy.

In this novella, Jazzie and Prescott are a cute couple who get c

Laughter truly is the fastest way to my heart. Make me laugh and I’m liable to be putty in your hands. This collection of authors have proven that point. Several of these are authors who I read regularly, and they gave me fantastic stories about characters I’ve always wanted to know more about. The rest are authors who are newer to me. Who, until this collection, I hadn’t indulged in their quirky, offbeat, and zany senses of humor. And now that I have, I have every intention of continuing to rea ...more

Dylann Crush writes contemporary romance with sizzle and sass. A romantic at heart, she loves her heroines spunky and her heroes super sexy. When she’s not dreaming up steamy storylines, she can be found sipping a margarita and searching for the best Tex-Mex food in Minnesota.

Although she grew up in Texas, she currently lives in a suburb of Minneapolis/St. Paul with her unflappable husband, three
